Small Car Crash

May 3, 2011 5 comments

Yesterday, Monday the 2nd of May, Jamie, Paul and I witnessed a small car crash. I know from many conversations from my friends that car crashes happen all the time inBangkokso this isn’t something that you can witness once in a lifetime. The reason I’m writing about this is because this was the first time I, myself, witnessed a car crash up close.

Jamie, Paul and I were in Jamie’s car during this. We were driving in the intersection near school. Suddenly, we heard a loud screech and immediately, we looked in front of us and we saw a pink Taxi and a silver Honda crash. At the looks of it, the Taxi hit the Honda. The taxi was damaged at the front right corner of the car. The Honda was damaged on the door on the right (back seat). As soon as the cars stayed in place (stopped moving) the people involved in the crash came out. The man in the Honda started shouting at the taxi driver for a while, and then they all got out and on their phones. We asked for Jamie’s dad to drive slower so I could get my camera. While I was taking pictures, we noticed that there was a farang (foreigner) on the back seat of the taxi. After the cars stopped safely he came out of the taxi and started to smoke while watching the scene. We also noticed that some of the pink from the taxi was on the Honda. 

In the end, I got a few good shots of the scene (the rest were blurry). Luckily, nobody involved in the crash was hurt. Below isone of my photos of the Handa’s dent.

Hello guys and Mr. Sam!

Osama Bin Laden has been killed early in the morning by the CIA Obama sent to Abbottabad in Pakistan.

I didn’t know about it until my tutor told me about it. I am really glad!

I wasn’t very happy and angry when Al Qaeda(Bin laden’s team) committed the September 11 attacks.

Cricket Match – Sri Lanka vs India

April 6, 2011 8 comments

Me, Anirudh and a couple of other friends watched the world cup  final together. Anirudh and a few other friends came to my house to watch the game. We were all very nervous as Sri Lanka posted a high score of 275. There were lots of messages going around on indian phones for example “all is well- pass this on”

Whenever the TV showed the crowd we looked for Shikhar as he was there watching it live. We didn’t have luck though as we did not see shiku.

When India started batting we al became very very nervous as one of our star batsman ( Virender Sehwag ) got out on the second ball.  Then  our greatest hope for winning Sachin Tendulker got out on 18 runs which gave some people tears as Sachin Tendulker had a possibility of getting his hundredth 100 in the World Cup final which would make the record books.

After this we were very very very very nervous as our score was 21 for 2 which is a really bad score. Then Gautam Gambhir saved us and steadied   the innings  by getting 97. Then with 25 balls left and 25 runs to win India started hitting Fours and Sixes.  

Then with four runs left to win Dhoni hit a massive sixer and India won the game. We were all very very excited because it was the first time in 28 years that India won the world cup. We all celebrated in our house.

Elementary School Sports Days 2010-11

November 10, 2010 1 comment

Please see below a message from Ms. Jane Mycroft (the Elementary School PE Coordinator) regarding the Elementary School sports days.

I am writing to you about our NIST Elementary School Sports Days for 2010-11 and a date for your diary. We plan to have a series of shorter but more frequent sports days this year for all of our Year 4-6 students. Our first Year 6 one will take place on Monday 22 November from 1-2.30pm in the sports centre. It follows the students recent basketball unit and will be run as a series of games of basketball for the students to apply what they have learnt in PE in a safe competitive environment. Students will need a reminder as this takes place on their first day back after camp!

We do hope you will be able to join us to cheer on your children. We plan to have a biathlon and a track and field day later in the academic year and will notify you of those dates when set.

If you have any questions please contact Jane Mycroft (Elementary PE Coordinator): jmycroft@nist.ac.th
